When we launched Afrigator - Africa's first social media aggregator - a month and a bit ago, truth be told, we knew there was much we had not had enough time to perfect. However, the decision between it not being perfect and us losing out completely was a no-brainer.
So ever since we launched we've been looking forward to improving on some of the shortcomings of the site. Now, the next version of Afrigator is fresh out of the brains of Justin, Mark and Stii and ready for your input.
Some highlights of the new version (there is a comprehensive report of all the new features and functionality at the Afrigator blog):
- Improved user dashboard with the ability to sign up multiple blogs per user
- Geek happiness - sign in to Afrigator using your OpenID
- MyGator - a feed reader within a blog aggregator. Customise your Afrigator experience by adding your favourite Afrigator bloggers to one central page for your reading pleasure
- Labels, which are another cool way to customise your Afrigator experience once you are signed in to the site
- Community blog ranking (which is toggled by clicking on the star next to the Muti icon) allows you to give a blog a ranking out of 5, on top of the individual post rankings which have been in place since day one
- Ja, we've finally fixed the tag and search clouds
- Stats and top sites algorithms have also been improved / changed
And that's about that. We'd love your feedback! Remember there's still time to refer someone to Afrigator or sign up for the first time to stand in line to win an Apple iPod!
